Broadway dims for Richardson

Late actress acclaimed in 'Cabaret,' 'Christie'

The Broadway League orchestrated the dimming of Rialto marquees Thursday night in memory of Natasha Richardson.

Lights were set to go out at 8 p.m. for one minute, in honor of the late actress who died Wednesday after a skiing accident.

Richardson, a member of the Redgrave family of legit royalty, won acclaim in Gotham for Broadway perfs in “Cabaret” (for which she won a 1998 Tony) and “Anna Christie,” among other outings.

The dimming of the lights in Richardson’s memory came the night after Rialto marquees were darkened in honor of Broadway alum Ron Silver, who died Sunday.
